SAT-7: Broadcasting Hope - Transforming Lives
Satellite television is a strategic way of communicating God's love, uncensored, directly into millions of homes from Morocco to Afghanistan.
To see a growing Church in the Middle East and North Africa, confident in Christian faith and witness, serving the community and contributing to the good of society and culture.
To provide the churches and Christians of the Middle East and North Africa an opportunity to witness to Jesus Christ through inspirational, informative, and educational television services.
In a culture where Christianity is distorted and stereotyped, and in the context of a myriad of channels that often glorify violence and death, SAT-7 is positive and colourful, seeking to embody God’s love in all of its programming. SAT-7 broadcasts 24 hours a day on a network of five channels broadcasting a creative mix of programmes, communicating God's love in Arabic, Farsi and Turkish. It is the largest and most watched Christian television station in the region, bringing the Gospel to an estimated total audience of at least 15 million people (independent research).
